A classic throwback to the cheesy buddy cop movies, in good AND bad ways.

The casting actually couldn't be better. Damon and partner have the bickering bromance thing down from the git. It has just enough romantic junk for mom and the sprinkling of comedy throughout keeps it fresh. The down sides are the heaping helpings of action cheese and face palm moments that are often poorly conceived and executed with the grace of a Bugs Bunny bit. Don't exspect too much, just some mindless fun and a few laughs. Some sexual banter and revealing bikini type scenes, but older teens should be fine.
